Color Correction

Senior Colourist Gary Shaw, with over 35 years of experience, holds a depth of knowledge and creative experience earned from thousands of projects combined with a thirst for innovation in the ever-changing technological landscape. With a background in both film and digital media, he understands that the critical balance of light, shadow and exposure is essential to realizing the intricate vision of Cinematographers and Directors.

Senior Colourist Jimmy Hsu, developed his love of colour at a very young age when he began painting. He eventually found his passion in photography and film where he can “paint with light’. With his extensive background in photography and film editing, he brings the visions of Cinematographers and Directors to life. He believes colour conveys emotions, and adds a vital dimension to the art of storytelling.

Colourist Kipp Lightburn, after two decades of experience in the Film Industry working both in front of, and behind the camera, has moved into the realm of Post Production.  He also brings with him about 30 years of experience as an artist.  His work includes Graphic Design, Video Game design, Book Covers, Comic books, 3D Modelling, Concept Art and traditional painting.  As a colourist, his extensive artistic background greatly informs his choices and sensibilities.  Extremely well versed in most aspects of filmmaking and with unsinkable creativity, he has wholeheartedly immersed himself in the art and science of colour.

Side Street Post & VFX, has taken advantage of recent technological developments, which have begun to blur the lines between colour grading and VFX, allowing integrated VFX to be completed in real time and at a fraction of the cost.
